About the location
A holiday in Malcesine takes you to the shores of Lake Garda, in northern Italy. This fairy tale medieval town, with a backdrop of the lake’s ice blue waters and an imposing mountain range, is a favourite with couples attracted by the romance of its cobbled streets, colourful houses and relaxing beaches. Active holidaymakers will love hiking or cycling in the mountains, para-gliding at dusk or stand up paddle boarding across the lake. Adventurous travellers will love riding the cable car 7,000 feet up Monte Baldo, where you can look down through the clouds over the town and surrounding area.

The town rises from the shore of the lake, its steep cobbled streets leading to historic landmarks like Castello Scaligero, built in the 13th Century. The castle and grounds now house three museums and temporary exhibitions. Around the port, you'll find a selection of cafés serving spremuta (freshly squeezed fruit juice) and gelato, as well as the odd glass of wine. While away an hour watching boats sailing on the lake and cable cars heading up the mountain.
